SuSE kernel (2.6.5-7.145) comes with nvidia driver 1.0-5336, dated Jan 14
2004, a year old. They have not upgraded the driver since SuSE 9.1 came
out, they simply compile whatever the kernel requires. This is consistent
with SuSE policy of not changing package versions during a distro life.

As long as we didn't update to the latest nvidia driver, it has worked
update after YOU update. But something went wrong this time.
